What took you by surprise with either this pregnancy, or a previous one? Or did it turn out to be about what you thought it would be?
I knew about needing extra calories, MS, peeing, physical discomfort etc. But I didn't quite expect the extent of the physical demands of pregnancy. The fatigue was crazy and I didn't realize how much extra sleep I would need (I don't think H fully understands that even this late in the game); not to mention the mysterious aches that appear and disappear. One upside that took me by surprise is the sense of serenity and normalcy that pregnancy brought along.
